Israel has conducted the fastest campaign to vaccinate its population against COVID-19 so far. The world is now watching how the pandemic in the country evolves to assess whether vaccinations are having the intended effect, and how effective they might be in preventing infection, severe disease and death.
To answer the question of how the vaccination campaign impacts the evolution of COVID-19 requires a thorough analysis based on an epidemiological model. All we can do here is to present some relevant data to track what is happening. Note that the changes in case rates, hospitalizations and deaths cannot be solely attributed to the impact of vaccination.
To be able to track the development of the pandemic in Israel, we show the data on vaccinations, confirmed cases, hospitalizations, ICU admissions, and deaths in the following charts. The data presented below comes from multiple sources:
- Data on total vaccinations (from our global dataset on vaccinations) and confirmed cases and deaths (from Johns Hopkins University) is updated daily.
- Data on confirmed cases by age group, and on hospitalizations and ICU admissions, comes from the Israeli government and is updated weekly.
- Data on vaccinations and hospitalizations by age were previously available and presented in this article. Due to a discontinuation of this sourcce data, these charts have been removed and are no longer updated.
The following charts show the share of the total population that have received at least one, or two doses of the vaccine. This data comes from our global dataset on COVID-19 vaccinations.
The following chart shows daily new confirmed cases of COVID-19 across the total population.
The following chart shows daily new confirmed cases of COVID-19 broken down by age. This data is sourced from the official data portal of the Israeli Government.1
